Take a look at some of the best things to do whilst on your trip below:
Cancun is all about luxurious hotels – there are many reasons why visitors head here again and again. When deciding on your hotel, make sure to take into account the amenities and offerings that make the hotel unique.

Discover Chichen Itza
Discover one of the world’s most incredible historical sites, Chichen Itza – only a few hours from Cancun itself and filled with Mayan ruins, one of Mexico’s most prolific civilizations.
Take a tour of Chichen Itza and discover the beauty of the whole site whilst learning all about their culture.
Due to the large amounts of limestone, very deep and underground lakes have formed, perfect for bathing in the crystal clear waters that fill them up. Head to a cenote to swim with the fresh water fish and take a shower under the waterfalls that’ll leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated for your day ahead!
Try Some Tequila
Tequila is kind of a big deal in Mexico. Avoid the gimmicky bottles with scorpions and worms inside and go for a locally produced agave bottle. If you’re unsure, make sure to check with an expert or visit one of the distilleries directly… many are open to the public and welcome guests on a daily basis.
Discover a Local Town
There’s lots to do when visiting Mexico, including visiting one of the many local towns – head off the beaten track and discover some of the pretty streets, beautiful craft stores and Spanish heritage that has influenced many local towns in this region.
No trip to Mexico is complete without eating a great deal of delicious Mexican food. Make sure you tantalise your taste buds with some local Enchiladas, Tostadas and Tamales.
Tulum is one of Mexico’s most Iconic Mayan ruins; head into the historical site that overlooks the Caribbean Sea and discover the beautiful architecture that was built during a time before European settlers headed to this beautiful region.
Don’t forget to pack some sunscreen and watch out for the many iguanas that will walk alongside you – but don’t worry, they’re friendly!
